    Chris, that is a wonderful picture in its own right but even more than that it is one of those images that acts as a catalyst for ones own imagination. It brought to mind a passage from a short story by Albert Camus where a character's earthbound experience is framed by the perspective of the heavens.





    p.s. I wasn't pissed when I wrote that

    A bit more playing around with Silver FX; its preset options for B&W conversion are far better than anything I could do manually.

    High contrast (smooth), Structured (smooth) and WetRocks would be all I ever need.

    This is the place where I come from.
    It a forest dominated area, surrounded by high mountains, lots of rivers and streams and the villages are situated above 1000 meters from the sea level.
    As for centuries was almost isolated due to the terrain, tradition stayed strong there, even the topic dialect which sounds a bit "heavy" and funny, is very close to the ancient doric one.

    Crossing Xerovouni mountain to get there... looking behind:

    This is the general view:



    Athamanica (Tzoumerka) by ChrisBrn, on Flickr

    It has a low population density. Forests dominate the low lying areas of the mountain. Grasslands, shrubs and barren rocks dominate the higher elevations. The main rivers draining the Athamanika are the Arachthos in the west, and theAchelous in the east.
    Athamanica elevation is 2429 meters (7969 ft)

    That’s a lovely big back garden you have Chris. Terrific views, is it accessible?
    Those mountains look pretty steep , you Greeks must have thighs like tree trunks to get around that terrain.
    Very envious I love mountains and greenery.

    Yes it is accessible!
    The roads are narrow and pass high on mountain slopes but it easily accessible even in winter.
    My father was born there, his paternal house is there so we go often there.
    Arachtos river looks tiny in the above photo but it's a large river and people go there for rafting.
    It is a very beautiful place.

    had to push this to get the texture and it's overdone the grain. Still, nice patterns anyway!
    Even the losers get lucky sometimes.
